We are developing sites across the UK - some on our land and others on land owned by 3rd parties.
The first thing we need to do when developing a site is to assess the wind resource. To do this, we need to erect an anemometry (or ‘met’) mast, for which we need planning permission from the appropriate planning authority.
In parallel with the met mast applications, we are talking to the various stakeholders we need to work with to develop detailed proposals at the sites. These include organisations like the local planning authorities (LPAs), Ministry of Defence, RSPB, Natural England, elected representatives and, most importantly, local communities.
